9781849462532: The Lisbon Treaty and Social Europe

On December 1, 2009 the Treaty of Lisbon entered into force. Although often described as primarily technical, it significantly amended the Treaty on the European Union (TEU) and the old EC Treaty (now the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, TFEU). This book explores what the Treaty means for social law and social policy at the European level. The first part of the book considers in detail how the general framework looks, at a time of financial crisis, for new foundations for Europe's social market economy. It questions the balance between fundamental social rights and economic freedoms, analyzes the role of the now binding Charter of Fundamental Rights, maps the potential impact of the horizontal clauses on social policy, and addresses the possibilities for social partners to enlarge their role in labor law and industrial relations. The second part, on the social framework of the Treaty, focuses on the development of the EU's competences. It evaluates the consequences of the new general framework on social competences, analyzes the evolution of the principle of subsidiarity and its impact in the new Treaty, looks at the coordination of economic policies in the light of fundamental rights, and discusses the adoption in the Treaty of a new architecture for services of general interest.

Review:

...should be read by anyone interested in Europe's future, labour lawyers and non-labour lawyers alike. (Amy Ludlow Cambridge Law Journal, Volume 72, 2)

Isabelle Schömann, Klaus Lörcher and Niklas Bruun have put together a remarkable set of nine essays analysing the implications of the Lisbon Treaty for social law and social policy at both European and national levels. This is a challenging task requiring scholars with a broad and profound knowledge of social policies and EU law, history and politics - a requirement met by the 10 authors whose different chapters are also stylistically quite homogenous.

All in all, The Lisbon Treaty and Social Europe could be of interest to a wide audience. It is a 'must' for all scholars interested in an original and rigorous analysis of present and future trends in the European Union. Thanks to the methodological approach used by some authors, it constitutes a comprehensive guide for anyone wishing to understand what the over-discussed Social Europe means today and what path has been taken up to now to arrive at where we are. Furthermore, the many academic, political and legal bibliographic references make the book real food for thought. In conclusion, the book could be of use to trade unions, bearing in mind that their rights are becoming less and less a purely national issue. (Giulia Frosecchi Transfer 1-2013)

All of these essays are characterised by clear scientific vigour and free thinking. (Michel Theys Bulletin Ouotidien Europe No. 10685)
